Rundfunkchor Berlin

Rundfunkchor Berlin

Profile:
The Rundfunkchor Berlin was founded 1973 by accompanying Solistenvereinigung des Berliner Rundfunks (also known as "Solistenvereinigung des Deutschlandsenders") and Großer Chor Des Berliner Rundfunks. Both were post-war successors of previous choirs of the German national broadcasting service having early roots from 1925 on.

Chorus masters have included Kurt Masur and Otmar Suitner. Dietrich Knothe (1982-1993) and Robin Gritton (1994-2001) continued the legacy.

Londoner Simon Halsey is their leader since April 2001.
